schema:description"Even as our political system remains deeply divided between right and left, there is a clear yearning for a more moderate third way that navigates an intermediate position to address the most pressing issues facing the United States today. Moving Working Families Forward points to a Third Way between liberals and conservatives, combining a commitment to government expenditures that enhance the incomes of working families while recognizing that concerns for program effectiveness, individual responsibility, and underutilization of market incentives are justified. While conservatives often propose economic incentives to promote desirable behavior, and liberals are often aghast at these policies, Third Way advocates take a more flexible position. A timely approach, Moving Working Families Forward makes policy recommendations that are both practical and transformative."@en
